Turns out a zero is not all that restful. There’s lots of chores to do like going to the gear store, planning the next two week’s food and water, buying the food, sorting the food into packs and bounce boxes, laundry, shower, town food. Don’t forget to relax!
But it’s true, I’ve managed to walk very little today. I try to punctuate each chore with a break. And it’s been another georgeous day!
In the late morning we went to the outfitter store to get some things. I’ve never seen so much gear packed into such a small space before! You could hardly turn around in there. But they did have a good selection and I got some dinners (hanging from the ceiling from a cord to conserve space) and bars. An employee (also avid hiker) named Puppy (because of her big eyes) was a big help.
We did some more chores in the afternoon and then went to the only restaurant for dinner. It was good. All the hikers sat around a big table, maybe 20 of us (including Puppy), and talked trail while we ate. Then we came back to our room and crashed around sunset.
I must admit, I spent a frustrating hour or two trying to figure out how to get photos from this iPhone onto this blog post, and failed. Are there any readers out there who can help me?
